by Conny C-A Malmqvist. C-salen.
In the film Den kulturelle onanisten (The Cultural Masturbator) Lena Mattsson focuses
the camera on questions about censorship; censorship is something both she and
Bo Cavefors have been exposed to. She illustrates in an artistic and poetic way,
the right to express oneself in words and images. The film is 34:20 minutes long.
